UNSOLVED Error 404 when trying to login using access token
I'm new to fusionAuth and I've just implemented a standard login into my PHP app using username and password.
I receive a correct success response with a token on top, which I store in the user's session, but if I try to call the login api using the token instead of the password, as explained here, I get a 404 error response:
FusionAuth\ClientResponse Object ( [errorResponse] => [exception] => [method] => POST [request] => Array ( [applicationId] => app_id [loginId] => username [password] => very_long_access_token [ipAddress] => 188.8.131.52 ) [successResponse] => [status] => 404 )
Any idea on a possible cause for this error?

@seednextsrl you typically don't use the access token as a login password.
The access token is what you present to other applications as proof that someone has logged in.
There are a few FusionAuth APIs you can call and present the access token as a means of authentication. They are marked with a little blue person.
Here's more about API authentication: https://fusionauth.io/docs/v1/tech/apis/authentication
Here's an example of an API which uses a JWT to authenticate: https://fusionauth.io/docs/v1/tech/apis/users#retrieve-a-user (scroll to the "Retrieve a User using a JWT" section).
